(CNN) - The mother of Kendrick Johnson, a Georgia teenager found dead in a school gym mat, has written a letter to the parents of Missouri police shooting victim Michael brown.

In it, Jacquelyn Johnson writes "as a mother who has recently lost a child under suspicious circumstances, I can only imagine the grief and pain that you are experiencing as you struggle to understand why."

She also urges Brown's mother to join with her and the mothers of Trayvon Martin and Jordan Davis to "fight for our sons."

Kendrick Johnson, 17, was found dead in a rolled up gym mat at his high school in January 2013.

Authorities believe he fell into the mat and suffocated while trying to retrieve a sneaker.

His parents suspect he was murdered.
